SDS showing up in soybeans

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I don’t think too many people in the state will deny that Ohio’s planting conditions were tough. We had a mix of saturated soils and cool temperatures. We have several soil borne pathogens that love these conditions, among them is sudden death syndrome, which is caused by Fusarium virguliforme. In Ohio, this disease tends to occur with greater frequency in fields that have higher populations of soybean cyst nematode. With the environmental conditions we had earlier this spring, extensive flooding injury, I would not be surprised to see a much wider distribution of this disease in the state.The most common symptom occurring at this time, as soybeans reach growth stage R5, as they start to fill out the pods are patches of soybean with yellowing in the leaves. This yellow will expand on the leaf and the centers will turn brown or necrotic. This fungus produces a toxin as it colonizes the crown (base of the plant). The toxin moves through to the top of the plant and causes the initially yellow and then necrotic or dead areas between the veins. As the disease develops, severely affected leaves will die and drop from the plants and leave the petioles. This fungus is a very good root rotter, and if you dig a few plants and look at the roots, especially after a rain, there may be blue green growth on the top and outside of the root. These are the spores of the fungus. This fungus will survive in the affected fields in this old plant residue and as specialized fungal structures in the soil. Meaning, it’s not going anywhere.There are several very good options for management now. The first is host resistance. This will be a very good year to a) see which fields have high populations of this pathogen, but b) score the resistance of varieties. Through a check-off funded project from Ohio Soybean Council we have been able to participate in a variety trial. I have been amazed at the change or shift towards high-yielding resistant lines.Again, if you do observe SDS in your area make a note on what the resistance scores were for SDS on your varieties; that is if you can remember what variety ended up in which field.The second line of defense is seed treatment. This is best used in fields with a history of disease and susceptible varieties are planted. ILeVO is a newer product which has had very good activity towards Fusarium virguliforme.Moist, cool conditions provide and environment that is highly conducive to this disease. If we could only have the weather cooperate with our planting schedules — but this isn’t possible in Ohio. Reducing soybean cyst nematode populations is also key. There is conflicting information in the literature, but overall anything we can do to reduce the numbers of SCN in the soil will greatly help.Other diseases that cause premature dying of soybeans include: Sclerotinia stem rot, Diaporthe stem canker and brown stem rot. There are a lot of similarities among these, many of these diseases will develop necrosis in between the veins. Sclerotinia will develop a bleached stem where the infections occurred, Diaporthe will have a clear necrotic lesion on the lower stem, and brown stem rot will have chocolate brown discoloration continuously or spotty through the pith of the affected plant.last_img read more

Boxer Suranjoy Singh wants to qualify Olympics to fulfil his late mother’s wish

first_imgCommonwealth champion M Suranjoy Singh’s mother Tampaklei Singh had dreamt of watching him strut his wares at the Olympics. But she was not destined to see her boxer son play as she died of cancer while he was fighting at the Asian Games last year.Suranjoy received the shocking news only after coming back from Guangzhou. He deeply regretted that as his mother would not be able to see him play in London next year, though he is yet to qualify for the Olympics.The 52kg-category boxer will go into the first Olympic qualifying tournament this month determined to live her mother’s dream. The World Championships start in Baku, Azerbaijan, on September 22.Suranjoy, before leaving for France to prepare for the World Championships on Friday, said: “My mother wanted to see me play in the Olympic since I was a child. Unfortunately, she is no more but I want to fulfil her dream by qualifying for the Olympics,” he told Mail Today. Suranjoy is so determined because he has gone though a tough time when the demise of mother had pushed him to despair. “My mother’s death was the lowest point in my career. I couldn’t sleep for months and used to close myself behind the doors at the National Institute of Sports in Patiala after training,” he said.The circumstances led to Suranjoy’s dwindling interest in training and his game went downhill for some time. It reflected when the boxer, who had clinched seven gold medals, including the Asian Championships and the Commonwealth Games, failed to win even a bronze at the invitational tournament in Cuba in May.advertisementSuranjoy had started imagining his Olympic dream getting shattered. He knew his mental situation would lead him nowhere. He wanted to come out of the rut, so he discussed the problem with the team’s assistant coach C Kuttaappa and a psychologist Dr Alva.They advised Suranjoy to get himself engaged in recreational activities and be more open to his teammates. He took their word as gospel truth and started training wholeheartedly.”Their advice helped me take the load off my mind and I took a resolve to take the World Championships seriously,” he said.Howsoever strong his resolve may be but his road to London is not expected to be a cakewalk.The World Championships will see the strongest ever competition, the reason being that the first of the two qualifiers – the other is in Astana, Kazathstan in April – for the Asian countries.Going by history, only one Indian boxer, Antaresh L Lakra (57kg), has so far qualified for the Olympics through a World Championships, in 2007. All others, including the 2008 bronze medallist Vijender Kumar had qualified through the second or third qualifying tournaments.Unperturbed by history, Suranjoy believe his best shot would surely earn him an Olympic berth.”There are two opportunities for the qualification and if I qualify in the first attempt, I will be tension free and my focus will entirely shift to the Olympics. But if I miss this chance I will have to wait for April and that may affect my Olympic preparations,” he said.”India has never had a glittering record at the Worlds, but let’s not ponder over the past. I believe in my potential and if I give my 100 per cent I will qualify.” Suranjoy said he might have to overcome the challenge from Chinse, Uzbek, Khazak and Philippino boxers. “They are good in my category. They are tough boxers to beat but they can be beaten if I give my best shot to live my mother’s dream,” he said.last_img read more
